What can I say - this is one of the most fantastic collections of short stories I've heard in a few years. Kudos to Mort Castle and Sam Weller for being able to round up this incredible caliber of talent.
While I bought this title mainly because of names I know (Neil Gaiman, Dave Eggers, Harlan Ellison) - what was most pleasantly surprising were the new writers I discovered who I sure hope have their own books out.
There are a couple of duds, but the gems in this collection make up for them. There are stories of unrequited love - because the lover is beyond the grave, time-travelling interstellar ghost stories, Hungarian ghost stories (detect a theme?) oh and stories that just revel in the essential being of youth and passion and humanity and the joy of storytelling.
The narration is also strong throughout, with an eclectic mix of narrators I all found spot-on. Can't recommend this enough, this will spawn many more hours of pleasant listening and discovery of new friends. Bradbury would be proud.
